Creating a webserver

Hi again guys,

Today i just got my first real job. I will be starting in a week (Thursday 17th Feb).

One of my roles from within this job is to set up a web server which will host a site created using something called plone.

What type of server will i need to do this? I have never set up a web server let alone any server before.

I am doing this job part time whilst studying at university. I would prefer to set it up with a linux os but i would first need to convince the company that linux is the right option.

What sort of things do i need to consider?

I will need to do everything from buying the machiene to configuring the server.

I know this is a very generallised question but i hope to get some ideas on where to look now.

The website will need to go online at the end of may.

I will have more inforamation next week after my first day of work.

Thanks very much for your help guys

Sorry bout the very open question.

Matt Phillips

P.s. My new employer knows i understand very very little about servers and how to set them up so dont worry. i would just like to start work in a week times with alot of inforation ready.

I dunno, but maybe one of the things you should consider is whether to take a look at one of the BSD (netBSD, openBSD, freeBSD) systems. From what I've heard they perform really great (and better than just a linux system) as servers.

You will see a comprehensive document in the documentation. It uses Debian unstable which I would not recommend in this situation but may still work with testing. I t may be worth contacting the author and getting some input and assistance from him on your project. Click on my www link at the bottom as I have some info on Internet servers and links to a number of documents on the subject.
